Subject: Extra Super Special
Extra Super Special Stuff here!! Lets see more.
Subject: As funny as a lobotomy
Dull, Bland, and boring short film. I've seen episodes of "My Mother The Car" that are better than this junk.
Subject: Not very funny but worth a look
I found this film entertaining. The humor has aged badly, But this is still a competent film. Worth a look if you liked other cars ads in the archive, But nothing special.
Subject: Other Fellow is good for its time
Edgar Kennedy was very funny and this film is informative and entertaining for its era.
Subject: Moral of story: Don't drive with Edgar Kennedy.
Light 'comedy' with Edgar Kennedy about a schmuck who bitches about bad drivers, while he can't really see how bad of a driver he is himself. While the comedy here is pretty stale, I liked how they tried to incorperate so many characters in this film (Kennedy plays them all). I also liked seeing the fender benders of the older Chevy cars. D'oh!
Subject: Edgar Kennedy comedy short!
This is a driver safety film from Chevy that is essentially a comedy short starring the great comedian Edgar Kennedy, who plays himself as well as all of the different reckless drivers he meets on the road. Edgar Kennedy was the master of the "slow burn," starting out at Mack Sennett's Keystone studio in 1913 (where he worked with Charlie Chaplin and Fatty Arbuckle), later supported Laurel and Hardy, Our Gang/Little Rascals, the Marx Brothers in DUCK SOUP (the lemonade vendor who feuds with Harpo and Chico), appeared as comic relief in many features and starred in many of his own comedy shorts for RKO during the 30's and 40's. Now I'd just love to see the Jam Handy short silent comedian Harry Langdon made in 1940 called SITTING PRETTY! Hopefully that will turn up some day. (Brent Walker)
